6 Rules to Follow for Safe Curbside Pickup During a Lockdown

Curbside pickup has become a popular way to support local businesses, especially restaurants that have had to close their dining rooms during the pandemic. But how do you protect yourself at the same time? Here are 6 helpful tips to keep in mind.

1.Review your order carefully. Triple-check your order before placing it to minimize the number of trips you take to the store

2. Wear a face covering and gloves. The CDC recommends wearing a cloth covering over your mouth and nose, or a face mask, when out in public.  This is now mandatory in many states.

3. Pay in advance. Many stores and restaurants will require you to pay for your order in advance of pickup with a debit or credit card. If that is not an option, be sure to clean your card with a disinfectant wipe before returning it to your wallet. Bring your own pen if you have to sign anything.

4. Remove your gloves and mask immediately after returning home. Remove your gloves carefully, turning them inside-out so any contamination is on the inside. Discard, and wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Remove your mask, being careful not to touch your face. Wash your hands again before touching food.

5. Carefully transfer any takeout food to your own plates. There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted through food, but there has been proof that the virus can live on containers and utensils for several days. After transferring, wash your hands thoroughly. You can also choose to wear a new pair of gloves when transferring your food.

6. Follow normal food safety procedures when eating. Refrigerate your leftovers within two hours as per the CDC recommendations. It’s also best not to share utensils and cups with your fellow diners.

Be safe!
